American Cancer Society 2017 Annual Report

Focusing on our mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer, the American Cancer Society 2017 Annual Report outlines our path forward, as we work to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. In the report, we showcase our accomplishments, and we detail revenue and spending for the calendar year 2017.

In our 2017 Annual Report, we recognize the contributions of our partners, volunteers, and leadership who join with us to attack cancer from every angle.

At a time when donors and volunteers have many charitable choices, we understand our obligation to demonstrate and communicate effectiveness. The American Cancer Society may not be publicly traded, but we consider ourselves publicly held. We want everyone to know how we are performing against our stated business goals and how we are fulfilling our mission, how we hold ourselves accountable, and how we ultimately measure our work.

Please take a moment to review the audited and certified financial information in this Annual Report. It’s a great way to appreciate the depth and breadth of the public’s investment in our goals, as well as to better understand the importance and scope of our work. The 2017 Annual Report is a record of what we’ve accomplished. It's also an invitation for you to join us.
